I feel nothing but love for the Del Marcos Hotel. It exceeded my expectations upon arrival after viewing it online. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. It's immaculate and well-kept. The pool area is so very tranquil and relaxing. I don't know if I just got lucky when I was there but it was very quiet even though the hotel was mostly full. There were several other guests/couples by the pool but everyone was very respectful of the relaxation mode of the other guests and there were no cell phone conversations and everyone spoke quietly...hooray for civilized behavior! The music played around the pool area is very subtle and only enhances the mid-century vibe of the hotel that extends to each unique guest room/suite.
I will stay here again since there's no need to look elsewhere in my opinion. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet but only a block from Palm Canyon Drive. I loved being able to run out to my car for something if needed without it being a major ordeal.
